Know Who to Follow: Best Inspirational Social Media Accounts

  • By Emma
  •  Apr 18, 2019

Tired of scrolling through memes, models, and posed lunches? Social Media doesn’t have to feel monotonous and meaningless, you just have to follow the right people.

The best celebrity or sports star Instagram accounts are both motivational and accessible; instead of flaunting a high-end lifestyle, they keep it real by genuinely relating to their audience and providing little bits of inspiration everyday. After all, with the amount of time we all spend on our phones consuming other people’s lives, Social Media posts should help brighten your day instead of drain it. 

Be more selective with who you follow, and why you follow them. 

Here are a few celebrities, professional athletes, and inspirational speakers who have engaging and uplifting social content every day:

After his one fairytale season ended, he became Director of Online Media for USC Football, where he created and managed the groundbreaking online presence for the Trojans as well as and was a contributing writer for Sports Illustrated, The Associated Press, USA Today, and The Dallas Morning News.
